Can you imagine what it would be like without the Capital Crescent Trail, Beach Drive closed to cars on weekends or bike access on Metrorail and bus? Can you imagine how the region might have developed without an organization dedicated to making sure that bicycling is part of the transportation solution?
The Washington Area Bicyclist Association has a 40 year history of successful advocacy in the Metropolitan Washington region. WABA works to creating a healthy, more livable region by advocating for next generation bicycle infrastructure and educating people about bicycling.
BikeFest is our annual fundraiser and celebration of bicycling. It’s our chance to celebrate advocacywins of the past year, such as the much-needed repaving of the 15th St Cycletrack in DC, Alexandria’s decision to move forward with bike lanes on King Street, and the passage of the DC Bicycle Safety Amendment Act. And this year, BikeFest’s Biketopia theme will examine futuristic designs and encourage you to imagine what facilities could possibly exist in an ideal bike world.
BikeFest is WABA’s opportunity to raise the funds needed to continue our advocacy, outreach and education efforts. Join us at BikeFest 2014 and you can help fund the expansion of trail networks, bike lanes, bikesharing and safer streets. Buy tickets here.
BikeFest is a celebration of all things bicycling. The party will feature an art exhibit, "Biketopia," envisioning the future of bicycle infrastructure; live music and dancing; catered food; a full bar; and a silent auction. Tickets are $45 for WABA members and $55 for the public. Guests receive two complimentary drink tickets. Buy tickets here.
BikeFest is a gala party with catered food, two fully stocked bars, a live band, and a silent auction. It's an occasion to dress up and schmooze with the D.C. area's most passionate and fun-loving bicyclists: WABA supporters!
The D.C. region has come far in creating and building next-generation bike infrastructure, but there's still so much to do. This year's BikeFest will feature an exhibit called Biketopia that will showcase bike infrastructure and design from around the world that is beautiful, idealistic, and futuristic.
We encourage nice dress for BikeFest. Should you want to embrace the forward-thinking theme of Biketopia, consider donning silver, gold, black, and sparkles.
